Today's County commission-THE PROBLEM!

This "item for consideration" from today's county Ways and Means committee agenda is classic "Muskegon" politics.

1. "In an effort to be efficient with current resources...". What the heck does that mean?
2. What do these "reclassifications" mean to the county and to the taxpayer? More spending?
3. "General fund is a net zero adjustment..". OK...what does that mean?
The county's biggest problem is not "general fund" spending it is the unfunded "Cadillac" benefits given to employees and retirees that is tied to every raise that every employee receives. How does "reclassification" affect our biggest problem which is we are making promises we can't afford to deliver?????

Not one commissioner knows what the answer is to any of these questions.
I doubt that any will even ask and/or receive a clear answer from administrator Hammersley.
And the pay increase shifting will continue in stealth mode as the union insiders continue their stranglehold on our county.

Don't we expect our county leaders to know what they are voting for BEFORE they vote?
Is Nancy (But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.) Pelosi the role model for our elected county leaders?

Don't they know we trusted them to do their job with honesty, hard work and integrity? 

Don't they know we're broke?

This is going on in municipalities across the country.

And it is wrong!
